dollars in deficit spending last four years. president says let's go back to the clinton levels of taxation. if we went back to the clinton levels of taxation we're still double the highest bush era of deficit spending still because spending was accelerated so much in 2009 and 2010. we're trying to bring the spending levels back down. on the contrary if we just brought the spending levels down to the clinton level spending instead of tax level going up to clinton level of tax it is would solve this. we're trying to solve the debt and deficit. we're trying to say how do we get out of debt. the president is saying let's get past the fiscal cliff and let's keep moving on. that doesn't solve the problem. what solves the problem is reducing spending and get our spending back down so our nation is back in balance again. jon: is it mostly medicare and perhaps social security that are the drivers of the problem in your view? >> it is everything that's on the table. when you look at our discretionary spending, how much that was accelerated through the one-year stimulus program to be done
clinton had bill cohen. so he's getting hit from so many different sides. >> he's getting -- and he's getting hit from republicans. he's getting hit from every side. i think it was an obtuse choice. and what the white house has done in floating his name and then being m.i.a. so, yeah, chuck hagel's nomination is d.o.a., and in the meantime, the white house is m.i.a. he's got to work really, really hard to find a nominee who is offensive to democrat-based constituencies like gay advocates, like israel advocates, like environmentalists and who is also offensive to republicans. you really have to work hard to find that combination. >> i think that's a totally strong point. he has no one in his corner, basically, except the president. >> and you talked about bill cohen as secretary of defense. did you know bill cohen got nominated and approved, unanimously, by the u.s. senate? >> john kerry is liked by more republicans than this guy. >> chuck schumer won't support -- >> a very different time. but we've got a record of democratic presidents picking republicans to be secretary of defense,

in front of a train in new york. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton heads back to work next week. she was sidelined for almost three weeks due to a concussion. doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks. >>> it's not over yet. another plast of snow is expected this weekend for parts of the country in addition to this. stretches of new england still digging out. this is the scene in maine where the governor made the call wednesday to close all state officers because of that snow. the strong wind and rain create a coastal flooding mess there. let's get the details from the weather channel's nick walker. whoa's going to get hid again? >> it looks like a break in some of those areas, but there is plenty back toward your west. that will be moving into the northeast as we head into your weekend, producing snow on top of that. it's pretty light here around chicago, milwaukee, toward the minneapolis area where we've seen a few airport delays simply due to icing and snow removal there. nothing 345i7b8g, but a lot of moisture is off to the south, produces thunderstorm
clinton obviously runs the state department. she is on her way out. john kerry, the nominee to replace her. is this going to affect his confirmation hearings at all? >> reporter: jon, the state department says at their end they're trying to keep things as smooth as possible. >> secretary clinton as you heard her say before has pledged to have a smooth transition with her successor. i don't have any phone calls or other activities of hers to read out other than say she continues to be on the mend and continues to recover. >> reporter: we know that republican senators still have a lot of questions for secretary clinton. just a few days ago senator lindsey graham says he wants to go all the way back once again to those sunday show appearances ambassador susan rice made that are now-infamous and find out once and for all if secretary clinton was not available to go on the shows because she was sick and giving grief counseling. jon? jon: peter doocy. thank you. harris: an even bigger scandal may be brewing in d.c., one that could raise taxes for every single american. we can't emphasize that en
person over $250,000 who would be subject to clinton dasher are tax rates and we're told this is not a big deal. most seniors are not living particularly well. we have the data on that. roughly 40% rely on their social security check with averages over $1200 a month for 90% or more of their income. 70% rely on it for more than half their income so the idea of these high-living seniors, i don't need my check, that's fine. send it back. very few people like you, pete. this is a big deal. >> there's even a question as to why we're dealing with the social security problem. it's not part of the deficit anyway, except for the part that should be dealt with later on. >> i keep getting into this thing, it's semantics. it's not just part of the budget but the other part of the story is it's a program that overthe long reason faces a shortfall. i know how i want it resolved but at the end of the day we'll probably see some amount of benefit cuts and some amount of revenue increases, whatever you call it. if you have unilateral benefit cuts you've given away a large part of the stor
department did this go? did it reach the 7th floor of the state department, ie, hillary clinton's office. we don't know that. >> dave: and that's why people want to hear from secretary of state hillary clinton, and hopefully recover from the concussion, from the flu to give the answers. there were four americans who died. >> clayton: great point. >> we have other news for you, get to it, if you're just waking up, after a second round of voting it looks like egypt now has a new constitution. you can see supporters of president mohammed morsi casting ballots for the islamic drafted confusion and reports that the constitution had passed and morsi says it's establishing democracy in egypt, but the some say it's nothing more than a power grab. is a serial killer on the loose in michigan this morning, concerns after police made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they have found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas for dna testing and investigators want to determine if the remains match the body parts months ago
sympathetic to conservative candidates. but they were very strong for jimmy carter, too. and for bill clinton, because they were southerners and themselves were of the faith and persuasions. but there were some of factors going on this time and this election. the obama team at the national level but at such a job, such an excellent job turning out its vote. the republican team did not. if you look at the same voters and how they are voting at state level and local level, you will get a different picture. we have a republican congress, a pretty conservative republican congress. people were comfortable voting for those folks. we look at governors, we have 30 republican governors now. so, many of the same people split their vote. they went for barack obama on the national level and when four republicans on local level. it is always more complicated. host: what is the future been like for the republican party? guest: we have no future. haven't you heard? we are done and finished. host: how do they deal on what seal -- guest: do have to argue for your point of view. i do not think we made a good a
the discussions were all about. secretary clinton was about to come into town for the strategic and economic dialogue. we felt no pressure to resolve this case and get them out of the embassy before she arrived. we had to make sure that he felt comfortable with whatever terms and conditions under which you would leave the embassy. and if not, we're prepared to have him be our guest and reside at the embassy for many many years. at one. he did not agree to the conditions offered by the chinese government. he said no. at that point, we started turning around and focusing on him being a resident for quite some time. >> would that have been possible? >> would have been difficult, but he would not have been able to roam the grounds freely because many parts of it are off-limits, even to some of the workers. who would pay for his, for instance, communications? in the old days you had a telephone, may be a land line, and newspapers. but now you have got the internet. how would he be able to communicate with the outside world? those things were issues that we started investigating, and trying to dev
clinton and the congressional republicans. it seemed at that time it was advantage president or whoever it was in the white house. is that the same sort of scenario we're seeing right now or is it possible for this president to overplay his hand? >> i think we're defining dysfunction down. i mean, the willingness -- maybe we will get an 11th hour agreement that avoids the fiscal cliff, but it will be a fairly minimal agreement. nothing like a big comprehensive deal. especially the republicans are having difficulty making the compromises you need to move forward in what is a very closely divided society. what is the alternative? you have a republican house but a democratic president who will be there for four years and a reasonable prospect if hillary clinton runs in 2016, a democrat will hold the white house then. what are we waiting for. in 1997 even, when a democratic president was reelected along with a republican congress, they said none of us are going away, we have to make a deal. that's not really happening yet. >> so tglass is half full for you? >> i think it can still happen, b
to be you could go back to clinton and gingrich. they wanted to come to accommodations, they both got what they want. now boehner wins, obama loses, obama wins, boehner loses, we're not good at these politics. but the zero growth premise will have long-term implications for investors potentially. >> usually not--the globalization makes it tough. but with the thing that's scary about globalization, there's also 2 billion consumers that are going to buy coca-cola and levis, even though we've got to bring a lot of people into the middle class. you can look at it, there's good and bad. >> i could argue both sides. >> we got to go. comments questions, anything you see on squawk e-mail us @squawkcnbc.com. you can also follow us on twitter. coming up, beyond the fiscal cliff, 90 new members of congress are on the way to washington and the new year. we're going to what the new makeup of capitol hill will mean for taxes, spending and everything else. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how mu
clinton actually put lots of cops in schools during his time in office through the cops in schools program. especially after columbine, he allocated even more money for that. this is an idea that not only helps prevent mass shootings, but also goes to the point criminals will always be in existence. there are always going to be criminals in society. they've always been there and always will be. >> karen finney, i don't know what's wrong with puts cops in schools. i'm going to go further. i know i'm a conservative, but i'm deeply troubled by these automatic weapons and deeply troubled by these 100-bullet magazines people carry around. and at the very least, what i'm suggesting, karen, is the background checks and the documentation has to be vastly greater than it is. vastly larger, and that includes the mental illness part, we're going to do it in the next segment. there are millions of documents that never entered the process for determining who is mentally ill. >> here's part of the problem. ask this is part of the reason that i think he's received so much criticism. his comments were so
through history, president clinton started the cops program where you have resource officers who are armed in the schools as a result of that. there is partial funding, but it's very limited and cut back it's insufficient obviously. it's going to take over $2 billion if you put a federal funded program for an armed person at every school. i think there's voluntary programs you can look at if you have trained people and we want to set up a model training for this. it always should be an option that the local school board finally makes the decision. i can understand skepticism, but i think that school safety is the debate. i think it is terrific that the nra is willing to fund experts and solutions that will be provided free of costs to the schools to hopefully create a voluntary program. >> it's more than skepticism. i want to read you two reactions to what the nra had to say. the first from mayor michael bloomberg who said they, meaning the nra, offered a paranoid vision of a more dangerous and violent america where everyone is armed and no place is same. -- safe. the nra's lobbyists blame
kerry as his nominee for secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. kerry became a front-runner for the job after the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, withdrew her name from consideration last week. during the announcement the president indicated that kerry's senate career makes him more than capable for the job. >> in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john's played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together. >> secretary clinton wasn't present for the announcement. she's still recovering from a concussion. but in a statement she said that kerri is re is an excellent choice. north korean state media is reporting a u.s. citizen has been arrested in north korea for committing an unspecified crime. they say a tour guide entered north korea more than a month ago, was eventually detained after evidence was uncovered

the advantage here, the polls indicate, as with bill clinton and this showdown with newt gingrich. the public tends to blame republicans when this happens. especially now at a time when over on the house side, you have so many republicans who are so far right and worry about farther right running against them in primary, that john boehner's plan last week. we don't know how much has changed since last week. but president obama sounded like he was saying something that he had been planning to say a all along. >> take a listen to the president's tone and tell me if you think somebody has changed. >> ordinary folks. they do their jobs. they meet deadlines. they sit down and they discuss things and then things happen. if there are disagreements, they sort through the disagreements. the notion that our elected leadership can't do the same thing is mind boggling to them. >> joy, is this is same kind of negotiator we saw in the first term? >> i'll tell you, richard. one of the things you notice that the president didn't do was offer any new plan. i think he's laying this debacle squarely at the feet
"put the harps back in the closet." >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is planning to return to work next week. mrs. clinton has not been seen in public in about two weeks. she's been recuperating at home since suffering a concussion. it happened when she hit her heard during a fainting spell brought on by a stomach virus. >>> overseas now, the united states has temporarily shut down its embassy in the central african republic. rebels advance on the capital and the state department is warning americans to avoid the republic. u.s. citizens already there are told to leave and there are no plans to evacuate u.s. military personnel. >>> now to a terrifying scene for shoppers in friday. if you are afraid of sharks, you may not want to watch this video. this was an indoor tsunami. a huge shark tank burst, sending broken glass and water crashing into onlookers. more than a dozen people were injured. sadly, the sharks did not survive. >> who thought that was a good idea? >>> the economy could suffer a major blow next week if thousands of union dock workers make good on their threat t

today nominated massachusetts senator john kerry to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. the president said kerry's life has prepared him for this role. kerry served two tours in vietnam. he's been in the senate since 1985 and he chairs the foreign relations committee. in 2004, you'll recall, he lost the presidency to george w. bush. it has been a week since the school shootings in connecticut, and in newtown, they marked that moment today.
